The blossoms of Streatham Hill are so brilliant. Some are delicate and subtle, others frilly, lacy, blousey. I’ve been getting a cricked neck from taking pictures of them on my daily walks to and from school this week.

A.E. Housman

The Loveliest of Trees:

Loveliest of trees, the cherry now

Is hung with bloom along the bough,

And stands about the woodland ride

Wearing white for Eastertide.

Now, of my threescore years and ten,

Twenty will not come again,

Downton bus stop
Downton bus stop

And take from seventy springs a score,

It only leaves me fifty more.

And since to look at things in bloom

Fifty springs are little room,

About the woodlands I will go

To see the cherry hung with snow.
